I will never understand what makes people like an image on Instagram. Some images get lots of likes, while others, which I think are great, get nothing! Anyway, I don’t take pictures to get likes or new followers, I take them because I like them. And doing the #fmsphotoaday challenge has made me experiment with different images, filters and blurs.
I am really enjoying doing the Photo a Day challenge and will definitely do it again, though I don’t think I could do it every month. It’s a good creative outlet, but it’s difficult to try to remember it & try and take pictures that are a bit more interesting!
Week 2 of #fmsphotoaday brought some new challenges. I wanted to take pictures beyond the obvious. Sometimes this was possible but not always, depending on what we were doing and the weather. But I was happy with the pictures this week & so were my followers!
I also like how many times I could get pictures of dogs in collection this week, though my favourite image is the one of the landscape – I found some new tricks to play with on my Instagram app! Nice eh!
I’ve often seen people doing photo diaries or photo challenges and I’ve wanted to have a go. So I finally decided to commit to doing it and have been taking part in Fat Mum Slim Photo a Day for October. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll have seen the pics, but if not, here’s a round up of week 1.
I’ve really enjoyed doing it – finding different things to take pictures of that fit in to the category chosen over on the blog. It’s also been really interesting seeing how people who follow me on Instagram respond to the images. I think I’ve even gained followers, which is great!
Have you taken part? What has been your favourite day so far?
